Apple Berry Smoothie

My mom generally hates anything I make with lemons; she's not a fan of the "bitter" taste (I actually find lemons refreshing). I made this smoothie while she was in the kitchen, though, & offered her a sip...SUCCESS!! Anytime my mom likes my food, I know I have a hit. She's not a vegan, & she's very particular about the produce that she will eat. Sooo when I am successful at pleasing her palate, it makes my day :) I've been keeping this smoothie on hand at all times; I really, really, enjoy the crisp taste of the apple & lemon. (I generally make 2-3 different smoothies & keep them in my fridge so I'm prepared.) So satisfying, this smoothie tastes of summer :)

From my kitchen, to yours <3

1 1/2 cups water
2-4 cups of greens (spinach, kale, your choice!)
1/2 cup strawberries
1 apple
1 banana
juice from 1 lemon (about 2tbs)

1) You know the drill: BLEND! Drink. Let your body do the rest :)

Now before you go away...I have to introduce you to Charlie :D My mom phoned me from work to tell me she had a present, & that I should name him be honest, I thought I was getting a teddy bear, haha. I was waaaaaaaaaay stoked to discover that she had adopted a Chocolate Mint baby for me!! I had been saying for awhile that I was going to get one for my AeroGarden, but Mom was one step ahead of me! Gillian, Timothy, & Chingy welcomed their little brother to his new home; I have a feeling he's going to fit right in :)
